Nail Polish Ideas: Pretty In Pink For BCA

by Stephanie Montes

This October we’re thinking pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. To show our support for something we deeply care about, we’ve created an easy nail-art tutorial for you to recreate at home. Follow our 4 simple steps to get a super pretty manicure, and shop nail polish shades that stand for something. From raising awareness to donating proceeds, these lacquers support an incredibly important cause while adding the perfect feminine touch to your weekly mani. We think you’ll agree: Philanthropy looks good on us.

Get Our BCA Mani

Start with a clear base coat to fill any ridges and create a smooth canvas.

Apply 2 coats of a natural pink colored nail polish.

Stick a strip of metallic gold striping tape across the top of the nail and trim excess.

Seal with a shiny, clear topcoat and voila!

Polishes With A Cause

Get your pink party on with this set of 2 pink polishes and a nail file. Celebrate in knowing that 30% of the proceeds go to the Beauty Bus Foundation, which provides beauty services for chronologically or terminally ill men, women and children.

Polishes With A Cause

These pretty pink shades are as philanthropic as they are appealing. Picking up one (or all) of them benefits City of Hope, a cancer treatment center that offers long-term medical care to breast cancer patients.

Polishes With A Cause

The name of this vivid polish hue says it all: "T.I.T.S." (Testing Is The Solution). 20% of proceeds from this bright pink shade are donated to Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, a charitable iniative of the CFDA that raises awareness and funds for breast cancer.
